I am making a certain someone a quilt.... right now - I have the fabrics, a few are cut....
The pattern comes from Here:
And..... It needs to be done by Christmas. Or maybe I should say Thanksgiving, that way if I procrastinate - it will still be done?
I don't make Quilts for lots of people for Christmas anymore... here is one reason why:
Recipient - upon opening said quilt " Oh this is SO gorgeous - how long did it take?"
Random person in Room - "I guess 20 hours"
Before Quilter can answer - - the conversation moves on, and that was that.....
Just an FYI - UM NOOOOO - 6 months to piece, the actual quilting of it took over 20 hours. But that is now between you and I .....
Not that I am looking for recognition - I have just decided that I will make quilts for me, and mine, and for whom I choose, not everyone I know at Christmas time. Much. Less. Stressful.... and when it is given - it is a gift, not expected... how about you?
